7:00 am
upset, a brand-new poll showing them in a dead heat ahead of the next big vote. winter warning. a new alert about dangers on the ski slopes. the terrifying moment this young boy slipped dangling 30 feet above ground and the hero bystanders who helped rescue him. the new best in show crowned after facing rough competition from thousands of dogs, c.j., the german shorthaired pointer walking away with the biggest bone of all now joining us live in times square only on "gma." all right, and good morning, america. there he is, c.j., the winner of the westminster kennel club's best in show award. he's just arriving here in times square. he took a walk there on our green carpet in case you missed it. we cannot wait to meet the top dog coming up. hear what he has to say about his win.
7:01 am
>> a great-looking dog. >> walks like a winner. we will get to that. we have breaking news overnight. apple is refusing to follow a government order to hack the san bernardino shooter's phone. the fbi believes important clues about accomplices and more plots could be hidden on the phone but apple says complying with the government order could endanger everyone with an iphone. abc's pierre thomas has all the latest from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's a showdown between the fbi and apple. the fbi trying to force apple to open that iphone as it hunts for clues in the san bernardino massacre. apple saying no way and this morning a federal court is weighing in. a federal judge in california ordering apple to help the fbi unlock an iphone used by syed farook who went on a murderous rampage with his wife leaving 14 dead in san bernardino. >> we still have one of those killer's phones we have not been able to open and it's been over two months still working on it.
7:02 am
a key victory in their long-running battle with apple and other tech companies about the government's ability to encrist data. apple vowing to appeal and saying it would put the privacy of hundreds of millions at risk and telling us overnight the government is asking apple to hack our own users and fear this demand would undermine the very freedoms our government protects. it did not have farook's numerical code to open the device. ten unsuccessful attempts would cause it to erase key data and make the phone permanently inaccessible. >> the battle is the traditional one between the security of society and the cost of individual privacy. >> reporter: but that security feature a critical roadblock. the fbi has been unable to get inside to look at texts or e-mails which might help them determine who farook and his wife might have been communicating with and where they might have traveled before
7:03 am
investigators are desperate to find out what happened in an 18-minute gap between the attack and the company's deadly encounter with law enforcement. the couple allegedly swore allegiance to the leader of isis and the fbi wants to know the extent of isis' involvement if any. that phone may hold the critical answers but the security on that phone is precisely what customers want if their phone is stolen or lost so privacy versus security in a legal fight that could go all the way to the supreme court. >> let's talk to our chief legal analyst dan abrams about this. such a momentous case, dan and apple is likely to be under tremendous pressure. what does the law require? >> up to this point the legal standard has been reasonable technical assistance, right. helping with a password is no big deal but now these new phones have become so technologically advanced that at this point, to offer the assistance that the government needs, they have to literally create a whole new system to
7:04 am
is basically saying, look, once we create this, it's going to get out and as a result, everything we've built in terms of protecting security and privacy is going to be out the door so this is one of those ultimate battles between the government's right to get information for an investigation versus typically it's the media fights very often for the right to know, here you have apple saying it's the privacy our users. >> adding the argument it could endanger people with iphones, as well. >> the minute they create this, they say, it's going to get out and as a result, no one is going to be safe is what apple is saying. really interesting situation. >> fascinating. thank you. now to the race for the white house. it is "your voice, your vote," just three days until the critical south carolina primary. the latest poll there has donald trump with a 16-point lead and abc's tom llamas has the very latest from charleston, south carolina. good morning, tom.
7:05 am
it's a commanding lead and the other candidates are running out of time to catch trump. now, donald trump's been in a war of words with all of his gop rivals, hillary clinton and bernie sanders, but now the involved. >> i continue to believe mr. trump will not be president. and the reason is because i have a lot of faith in the american people. >> reporter: president barack obama doubling down on his prediction that the world will never see a president trump. >> come on. get in here saying trump's skills won't help him in the white house. >> it's not hosting a talk show or a reality show. it's not promotion. it's not marketing. it's hard. and a lot of people count on us getting it right. >> reporter: trump firing back a direct message. >> you're lucky i didn't run last time when romney ran because you would have been a one-term president. >> reporter: but the president's
7:06 am
the other gop candidates are saying. >> when radical islamic terrorists wage jihad on the united states of america, the answer is not to tweet insults at them. >> reporter: do you think donald trump is somebody you would feel safe with protecting our country. >> well, i don't think donald has shown yet an understanding of our national security situation. he hasn't really exhibited any sort of in-depth knowledge about the issues confronting the country. >> reporter: and jeb bush saying trump's shots at his brother's administration over 9/11 is nonsense. >> though one envisioned 9/11. i don't care what donald trump says. the guy is a complete loser with his statements about this. >> reporter: and the jeb bush campaign making a different type of statement on twitter tweeting the word "america" with this image of a new gun, bush's name etched on the barrel. but the campaign may have fired too fast. jeb apparently unaware of the tweet explaining the gun was a gift. >> the purpose was we went to a gun manufacturing facility where
7:07 am
wage jobs and i received a gun and i was honored to have it. >> reporter: now trump's criticisms of president obama on 9/11 may actually cost him some votes here in south carolina because the governor here nikki haley who is very popular with republicans is expected to endorse someone but she says she's definitely not going to endorse trump. why? she says it's embarrassing that someone would attack president bush on one of the worst days in american history. >> a lot of eyes on her with three days to go. the democrats now, nevada caucus and the race is a dead heat. clinton, 48%, sanders, 47% and cecilia vega is here with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. those numbers show exactly what the clinton campaign is worried about, the race in nevada is neck and neck but so is that battle for black and latino voters as bernie sanders tries to gain ground, clinton is fighting back hard.
7:08 am
>> thank uyou, morehouse. >> reporter: overnight bernie sanders at a historically black college trying to make the case. >> together we are going to end the horrors of unarmed african-americans being shot and killed by police officers. >> reporter: and in south carolina, hoping to close the gap. >> when we talk about inequality, it goes without saying that the african-american community is suffering even more. >> reporter: with the palmetto state's democratic primary on the horizon this morning they're waging a heated battle for the same prize, the african-american vote. clinton on tuesday meeting with civil rights leaders including al sharpton. >> i'm looking forward to the conversation. >> reporter: then heading to harlem talking race relations and launching an all-out assault on republicans. clinton implying racism is behind the threat to block
7:09 am
>> many republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. they demonize president obama and encourage the uglyiest impulses of the paranoid fringe. this kind of hatred and bigotry has no place in our politics or our country. >> reporter: a sweeping speech that was nearly unraveled by a coughing fit lasting more than four minutes. >> too much to say. >> reporter: she did manage to get through that speech. the audience members cheering her on but here's what's at stake. the black vote is expected to make up more than half of the electorate in south carolina, george. that is why they are fighting so hard. >> cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk about it with matthew dowd and fox news contributor mary katharine ham. welcome to you both. matt, the democrats, nevada a dead heat. a few months ago hillary clinton had a 20-point lead and shows
7:10 am
cut into her advantage on minority voters. >> she is keeping on moving the fire wall down the calendar. her argument has been iowa, new hampshire, predominantly white rural states. well, you're going to nevada which is a predominantly urbanized state. i think if she loses nevada, south carolina closes probably still difficult for bernie sanders but the dynamics of the race will keep adjusting as bernie sanders wins. >> it will go on for a long time. on the republican side mary kathryn, you have him holding on to that big lead. what would it mean if after basically declaring war on the leaders donald trump wins in south carolina which traditionally goes with the winner of the nomination. >> i think it doesn't mean the end of the race certainly. he as you see with all of his polling he remains strong and support remains strong even when
7:11 am
cruz and rubio as we see in polling can finish a strong second and make an argument we will have the three-man race many thought we would have coming out of new hampshire and refocus people. >> matthew dowd, at the same time you have all these republican leaders even after he attacks president obama saying they will support trump if he is the nominee. >> i think they'll be in a difficult spot. i think if he wins south carolina and it becomes a three-man race that's good for donald trump because i think donald trump right now, his bottom is 35%. he wins nevada next, he goes into march 1st and probably wins most of the states on march 1st. how do you stop donald trump once he wins south carolina? >> that will be the question. thank you both. now to the battle everyone the supreme court, the late justice antonin scalia's seat draped in black as republicans plan to block president obama's plans to fill that spot. the president pushing back hard saying he will nominate someone and mary bruce has the latest.
7:12 am
now and january 20th of 2017 and expect them to do their job, as well. >> reporter: president obama is doubling down saying the supreme court is no place for political days and dispelling rumors about who he'll pick. >> you shouldn't assume anything about the qualifications of the nominee other than they're going to be well qualified. >> reporter: but republicans insist they will block his nominee to replace justice antonin scalia no matter what. >> it is not fair to appoint for a president in their last year in office to appoint someone to a lifetime position. >> reporter: in a sign at what's at stake the powerful chairman of the senate judiciary committee hasn't ruled it out. >> i would wait until the nominee is made before i would make any decisions, in other words, take it a step at a time. >> reporter: both sides digging in their heels as the nation mourns the loss of a conservative legal giant. on friday, scalia's body will lie in repose, a public viewing in the great hall of the supreme court. not far from where he sat during
7:13 am
that chair now cloaked in black. now, as for the funeral friends and family will gather saturday at the washington basilica. the burial, however, will be private. george. >> okay, mary, thanks very much. we move on to that extreme weather all over the country. record heat in the west is heading east where the big thaw and heavy rain is melting snow as tornadoes tear through the south. rob is tracking it all. >> hey, george, good morning. what a wide-reaching dynamic storm had was as it wrestled with record cold. almost 200 storm reports and yesterday from new york all the way down to naples with florida bearing the brunt. wicked winds, torrential rains, and tornadoes ripping through the south. three tornadoes touching down in south florida. this twister tossing debris as drivers try to navigate the flying projectiles. some flooring it just to get out of the way. you can hear this car take a
7:14 am
>> oh, [ bleep ]. >> reporter: winds reaching up to 100 miles per hour. surveillance cameras capturing trees being tossed as the storm moves through. winds ripping the roof right off this tractor trailer then tossing it on its side in the middle of interstate 95. >> it was like the "twister" movie. >> reporter: it ignited a fire in this neighborhood. storms from southern florida all the way up the east coast. in pennsylvania, winds over 50 miles per hour knocking this semi to its side and nearly off this heavily traveled bridge. and the back side of this system across western new york, 18 inches of snow in rochester, a record. the next storm coming into the northwest, this will hit the entire west coast with rain, wind and mountain snow. they could use the rain in southern california. they're not going to get a whole lot. more on this later. michael, back over to you. >> when you talk mr. snow i don't think this is what any of us had in mind. new video from a ski resort in
7:15 am

7:16 am
look at the highlights and a few rough spots. >> i don't know how these judges do it. there are so many beautiful dog, it is so hard to choose the top dog but in the end there can only be one best in show. >> may we have the sporting group in the ring, please? >> reporter: the dog eat dog competition coming to an end. c.j. the german shorthaired pointer from the sporting group fetching the coveted title. >> 2016 is the german shorthaired pointer. >> the german shorthaired pointer, c.j. >> reporter: over 3,000 pups from seven groups across the nation chasing the dream but only one could become best in show. >> he knows what he's supposed to do. this is the show to win and i've dreamt about it since i was 10 years old. >> reporter: c.j. is the third german shorthaired pointer to become best in show at westminster. but it wasn't a walk in the park. this year's fierce competitors
7:17 am
among the seven finalist, rumor the german shepherd, a samoyed, skye terrier, panda the shih tzu and annabel but c.j. took the title of top dog. this german shepherd, a crowd favorite and while she didn't win, rumor certainly has it. >> a great attitude. that's kind of like the icing on the cake. she's a showing machine. she loves it. >> reporter: other favorites like khloe may not have taken home the gold but they just took it off. after all, many dogs dream and drool at the idea of becoming best in show. but only one can snatch the title. >> he has major "it" factor. >> and the last german shorthaired pointer to win best in show at westminster was actually c.j.'s grandmother carly back in 2005 so great gene, of course, and c.j. will join us later in the show. >> exciting. >> reunions in the family. >> almost looking into the soul

surprised she's willing to take this to trial? >> right. >> all the publicity. >> her lawyer seems to be suggesting she was offered a plea which basically would have wiped out her record, no jail time, nothing, she rejected it because she wanted to go to trial. i think that her defense is testimony. meaning she's going 0 have to get up on the witness stand and say, here's what happened. here's why it happened and, remember, all she has to do is try to invoke reasonable doubt. it doesn't mean that a judge or jury has to necessarily say she's right. when you're charged with a crime all she's got to do is be able to convince the judge or jury that there are questions about what happened here and this is one of those situations where she may be able to do just that. >> all right, what is she facing if convicted. >> months if not years. we have that terrifying rescue caught on camera. a father pulling his son from a

7:48 am
>> what kind of competition was c.j. -- c.j., what were you up against? >> well, in the best in show ring when you get to that level of competition, the dogs are all top winning dogs at the top of their game. it's special. it's like the super bowl of dog show, so he took it. he was the winner. >> one of the other breeders said it was like winning the super bowl to win the westminster dog show, so, valerie, is it like the super bowl? how do you feel about it. >> absolutely. it's the best dog show in the world. everybody comes here from every other country to compete here and win here. it's like what we strive for. >> i notice c.j. has a little routine before like -- football players have a superstition and things they do before they compete. c.j. has one of his own. >> absolutely, he generally most of the time he'll usually sneeze. >> that's his before you show he sneezes. >> shakes it out. >> now, i'm just curious, c.j., i have a treat for you here, but after c.j. wins, is there like a treat? is there a steak in order? >> something like that today,
7:49 am

7:51 am
and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.

a 67% rise in adults who are using adderall without a prescription. so that 1% of all adults were doing that and a dramatic rise in er visits for that. 156% rise there. >> if these young adults are using it where are they getting it? >> what they found was equally concerning. most were getting it from friends and family who had a prescription from a doctor and i have to tell you, you know, these drugs are relatively safe used under doctor's supervision but medical conditions that put you at risk and you don't want to share these drugs. >> why are the young people doing it, get an edge in studying or get amped up before going out. >> that sees to be a big thing getting that edge. it's not clear whether people are using them as well when they go out to party but a study found 62% of college students share these drugs with other people and you just shouldn't do that. >> what are the side effects? >> under doctor supervision, sleep problem, appetite. those can be managed. if you use them without that

8:12 am
>> ronda rousey. >> she is a powerhouse athlete and a stunning cover model for "sports illustrated," mixed martial arts superstar ronda rousey is seemingly able to do it all. >> she's unbelievable. >> but now she's speaking out for the first time on camera since her shocking defeat to holly holm in november. >> holly holm is the new ufc bantamweight champion. >> tearfully revealing to ellen degeneres that she had suicidal thoughts following her devastating loss. >> i was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself and in that exact second i'm nothing. what do i do anymore. >> reporter: rousey whose father committed suicide when she was just 8 credits her boyfriend of almost a year, travis brown for picking her back up. >> i looked up and a saw my man, travis was standing there and i looked up at him and i was just like, i need to have his babies.
8:13 am
>> ronda said travis reminds her of her father because he is a protector. >> reporter: speaking to her ten days after the hit it was the lowest point of her life. >> she was trying to process it and it did feel like the life she had been leading was over and i think that's what she was trying to say there. >> reporter: the 29-year-old add economies she was burnt out after competing in her third title fight in nine months and while she might be out of the running for now, she says she has big plans for the future. >> i really do believe i'm still un undefeated because being defeated is a choice. everybody has losses in their life but i choose to always be un undefeated. >> reporter: holly holm reacted to rousey's agony saying when you lose at something you pour your heart and soul into, it's a terrible feeling. holm is scheduled to defend her title march 5th.
8:14 am
holm to make everything right again. >> all right, linsey, thanks so much. joining us psychiatrist dr. janet taylor. janet, you could see the emotion of ronga in that moment. what do you think the impact is for those watching to hear her reveal that very dark moment? >> it's powerful because you have a champion who is expressing her vulnerability. i mean everyone has a loss at some point in their lives but for her she had an extreme reaction because she said she was suicidal and it also sounds like the loss challenged her sense of purpose. >> and this is not something we hear many people admit. why is it so hard for so many of us to be open about those moments? >> well, it's stigma and so often still in society there's a stigma against people who express extreme unhappiness or suicidal or have a mental disorder or ills and she's saying she can work on it.
8:15 am
mental disorder, not mental illness which means you can be diagnosed with something so the point is if you're feeling something overwhelming and feel like you want to hurt yourself or feel extremely sad talk to somebody about it. if ronda rousey can say it, anyone can. >> right, because you can have that situational moment, as well, that strong emotion. it was interesting, ronda said when she felt that darkness she looked up and saw her boyfriend. that pulled her out of it. how important is it to have someone, anyone there with you in those types? >> it's important. it was a moment. it was a suicidal thought. if someone is actually suicidal with a plan that's an emergency. having a sense of support is extremely important. if you have a religious affiliation to talk to someone. and the key thing is to understand that you don't have to resolve it on your own. if you're a family member and hear someone is suicidal get help. >> a lot of people are in those moments and part of the reason why they feel so down, so sad, so suicidal is because they're alone. who then do you reach out to? >> you have to break the silence
8:16 am
if you're employed look for employ assistance or there are guidance counselors at universities and educate yourself about moods and find a reputable source like the nat institute of mental health or the mayo clinic to identify what different mood swings can mean and get help for yourself. >> to know you are not alone. there is help. >> no, we have to break the silence and stigma about what it means to have extreme mood swings. >> dr. janet taylor, as always, thank you so much. lara, over to you. >> thank you, amy. now we turn to kate middleton's new role, the duchess joining the huffington post team taking on a temporarily assignment as guest editor is cover an important cause, #youngmindsmatter trending all morning and lama hasan is in london with the latest. good morning, lama. >> reporter: and good morning to you, lara. yes, a huge first for the duchess of cambridge this morning as she becomes a guest editor for "the huffington post" right here at ken sing ton
